    It's Impossible to Stop.

    As a child I never cried. Then I cried a lot. Everywhere and about everything. Several times in front of teachers. Just because my teachers would make a comment like "You have to work on this or that.". It would make me cry. Now I'm hardly ever crying again...

    Loss of a Father Or a Son.

      I try not to cry in public but in private when I watch about a loss of a father or son in this horrible Iraq war mess I do cry at times.  I find this situation of our military in Iraq very upsetting.  I just have to comfort myself with God's Word and pour my...

    Wish I Could Cry

    I am 52 and in my life i have never really been able to cry. I have had so many times when crying would have relieved some of the sadness and stress that built up in my life. People who cry probably can't even understand why I can't. It just seems I can't let go and let myself...

    A Thought?

     Sometimes... it seems like the people that try not to cry are the ones in need of a really good cry. You can't hold everything in forever. You have a breaking point. Just let it out when you can...  But what do I know? I cry all the time. :/
